Guido Maria Kretschmer describes a special day in his life: a late summer day in Berlin when he decides to let people come to him - without a mask, without sunglasses, with an open view.

His way through the big city gives him the most unusual encounters. People let him share their stories because they trust him, because they think they know him. There is, for example, Chanti, who will soon be flying to India to meet her great internet love for the first time, or Petra, who in her mid-fifties is questioning her whole life because she has met and fallen in love with a woman. Each of these stories gives Guido the opportunity to also remember experiences from his own life. Because we take ourselves with us, no matter where the journey goes - and at the same time every encounter has the power to leave a lasting memory. Through every encounter with another human being, we also learn something about ourselves by opening up a new perspective.

On this day, Guido takes 19,521 steps. Through the city that means so much to him and yet shows itself from a completely new side. It should be one of the most beautiful days of his life. A day that illustrates what a great gift it is to go through life openly and appreciatively - because it gives us so much in return.

Guido Maria Kretschmer is one of the most renowned German fashion designers. Since 2012, he has delighted an audience of millions in various TV programs, above all in the cult format »Shopping Queen«. Among other things, he was awarded the »Golden Camera«, the »German Television Prize« and the Austrian film and television prize »Romy«. But Guido is also successful as an author: his two style guides were at the top of the SPIEGEL bestseller list for months.
